Conclusion: Wanted a basic good sounding unit with a volume knob so I bought this based on the reviews, wondering if something is wrong with my unit, because I'm somewhat disappointed.. Maybe its just mine but there are some annoying quirks. 1) No separate function buttons, only one, so you have to press it a number of times to go between Radio, USB, etc. I'd rather them be separate for quick access. 2) Bluetooth is terrible.
Summary: The rms power the radio has is awesome for just a head unit. The issue I had with this radio was the screen, it was installed for about 2 weeks before I returned it. The radio was installed in an 08 civic the problem was the screens brightness. The only thing you can do for brightness is change the contrast. If you have a radio that gets direct sunlight do not buy it. Otherwise its fantastic.
Conclusion: Installed in a Honda Ridgeline. Not a bad unit, sounds ok but has a low rent feel and look. Pro: Lots of options, plays usb, bluetooth very easy install. Con: Display looks like 80s VCR, Bluetooth sync problems, Does not play Mp4 files.

Summary: Overall good value for the money, but a few little things bother me. I bought this for a 2005 Honda Odyssey. I also had to buy: - a double-din kit to hold it - a harness to connect the car's plug to the radio's harness (instead of cutting off the plug that comes with the car, the harness plugs into the car plug and has the wires that should be connected to the harness that comes with the radio) - an adapter to connect the honda amplified antenna to this unit - a steering...
Great features, great looks but troublesome bluetooth

Summary: I've had Clarion products dating back almost 20 years, and I've always liked Clarion aesthetics, ease of use and intuitive design. With one glaring exception, this stereo is fantastic. It was easy to install, and has some really cool features. Once paired with my iPhone, I set it to pick up incoming calls after three rings and it works as advertised. Sound quality is great and it's easy to use.
Summary: Product is a good buy but not for the money should have pruchased a boss unit or something with dvd for a little more,purchased cause it said that this unit fits my vehicle well thats true after some modification to the radio housing with a dremel tool and the radio is not half as secure as I would like it to be but there are little to no information on how that was acquired.
